Pipit - Poland (1 Viewer)

Hello

This afternoon, I saw this Pipit.. First thought was a Meadow Pipit, but it just looked different to me.. Was thinking Water Pipit, but maybe it's just a Meadow Pipit?

I know pictures are horrible quality, but there was very little light.

Hope it's still good enough for ID

Thanks.. Then it was good I took some pictures in stead of just assuming it was a Meadow Pipit..

Is it possible to point out a thing or two, that shows it a Water Pipit and not a Meadow or is it just a general appearance thing?

Strong white supercillium and wing bars, white underparts, rather plain mid-brown mantle. Lack of olive or yellow tones.
